The Unicist Functionalist Approach in the 4IR

Our basic and applied research has provided access to the causal approach in the real world. The discovery of functionalist principles, developed at The Unicist Research Institute, made a causal approach to business possible. It was made accessible to everyone through the use of the Unicist Conceptual Designer, which is based on managing the functionality of things and binary actions that, on one hand, expand possibilities and, on the other hand, ensure results, thereby enhancing growth and efficiency.

There are two basic conditions to enter the world of functional knowledge of adaptive environments. Functional knowledge is defined as the integration of the “know how” of adaptive systems and environments with the “know why” of their functionality.

These two approaches are integrated by a reasoning process that allows making knowledge reasonable, understandable, and provable.

The access to the functional knowledge of adaptive systems requires accepting that all types of adaptive systems have a functional structure that is implicit in the intelligence of nature, which means that they have an implicit purpose, an active function that defines their possibility to expand, and an energy conservation function that ensures their survival.

The Unicist Conceptual Protocols are based on the unicist functionalist approach and were developed to provide structural solutions for businesses. These protocols provide the tools, drivers and catalysts to build adaptive business solutions. The use of these protocols requires having the necessary functional knowledge to manage the know-how and the know-why of business functions and processes.
